    When I'm at school, my brain is dead.

    But when the night comes around, I suddenly transform into a genius. How can this happen???

    I hate having to be diurnal,

    I much prefer night time, less people around, it's nice a cool outside when the day has been hot, it's quieter and I can avoid crowds. Just a shame that nothing is open and life stands in the way of being nocturnal.

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    why do they call it being a "night owl".

    .. why not a "night elephant" or "night snail"?

    I have trouble sleeping at night.

    And though i wish i was snoring and up in the clouds, i do appreciate my night with reading and listening to Gospel music. Best time to meditate is at night. God is good!

    Urgh.. What's worse than staying up all

    night; is the fact that you struggle and fight just to fall asleep, only to toss and turn for the next 4/5 hours and wake up at the tiniest noise!! and then not being able to get back to sleep.... Hmm :/ stupid brain!!!!

    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    I have this really messed up sleeping cycle.

    I have tried so many things. And I just can't fall asleep, my usual time to stay up, even on school days, is 2-4am. I have tried reading, melatonin, meditation, thinking, and just plain sitting in the dark. If anyone has any other ideas, please tell me

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    I usually stay awake

    until about 3:00 in the morning. I spend most of my time at night reading, writing, and watching documentaries. I will occasionally take a walk outside if the weather is permitting. I enjoy seeing the stars and watching airplanes landing at and departing from the nearby airport...

    Obviously. It's 2 am

    and I am wide awake. My "accidental" nap I had at 10 pm probably didn't help thingz much. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one up at this hour... The silence is nice, but trying to sleep during the noisy day stinks most days.

    All of my creative juices brew in the night.

    I amaze myself with the ideas I come up with at this hour. I don't know if I should be excited or terrified of what might come out of this o.O

    I just wanna jump out my window

    and into the night, breathing in the thick air. Looking up at the stars and walking along the street, everyone asleep. It's good to be an insomniac sometimes.
